How it works


Despite writing exactly 100 novels (perhaps more than any other popular Afrikaans writer; and he was working on the 101th when he died), Mikro, was - Gerhard Beukes, his friend and publisher, tells in his preface - never satisfied with the luke-warm recognition with which his works were received by \"the serious critics\".

The author himself tells us the reason for his pen-name - C H Kuhn himself wa a teacher in the Cape Province before moving to Pretoria as a civil servant.

The jacket is rubbed and chipped and there is an 80 mm stain on the inside of the spine. The rest of the book - covers, binding, 192 pp of text and portrait frontispiece - is unmarked and near VG.
